During this process. the pipe ends are capped or plugged and the filling medium is compacted as much as possible to remove any air pockets prior to heating. Inc. Details on proper solvent cementing techniques are available and must be reviewed for proper assembly and joint integrity. Thermal Expansion and Contraction As with other thermoplastic materials. Successful bending requires that the appropriate amount of heat be applied uniformly to the required length of pipe to be bent. joint integrity is readily identified during the solvent cement joining process. long-radius sweeps for conduit and flo w conditions. The rate of expansion or contraction can be calcula ted as follows: ∆L = 12 yL (T) where: ∆L = expansion or contraction in inches y = 4. PVC pipe should be hea ted from 225 °F to 275 °F for the minimum amount of time necessar y to achieve uniform softening./in. while at the same time provides an excellent medium for uniform heat distribution during the heating process. The filling medium used should be packed tightly into the pipe to achieve the desired bend radius with minimum distortion.T@ installation) Heat Bending Bending of Harvel Clear™ pipe may be desirable under certain conditions where long-radius bends and unusual configurations are required. the reinforced female adapters provide an excellent threaded connection for disassembly while maintaining system transparency. This presents the greatest challenge for field bending. such as IPS Weld-on 705 Clear cement and IPS Weld-on P-70 Clear primer . Care should be taken to avoid exposing the pipe to bending temperatures for an excessive length of time. medium-bodied. Various sizes and wall thicknesses of rigid PVC pipe have been successfully heat-formed for many years into numerous angles. contact the paste manufacturer for compatibility with PVC prior to use. To maintain the system’ s clarity. as the heating method used must provide the necessary amount of heat over the required length of pipe in a reasonable amount of time. 6 . The reinforced design reduces radial stress encountered with typical threaded connections. or in some cases providing internal pressure. Specialty clear female threaded transition fittings. Sharp bends (> 30°) require higher temperatures (250°-275°F) as well as internal support to prevent wall distortion/colla pse. electric pipe heating blankets. reduce problems associa ted with overtightening and provide a strong. Where disassembly is required. and eliminates the need for system pressure de-rating traditionally associated with non-reinforced plastic threaded joints. leak-tight seal for plastic-to-metal transitions. Harvel Clear™ can be easily joined in the field using standard rigid thermoplastic pipe fittings and joining techniques such as flanges. Localized overheating must be avoided. As an added advantage due to the product’s transparency./°F. Joining options are limitless when overall system clarity is not a necessity. followed by one to two turns beyond finger tight is all that is required to make a leak-free connection. the sand is emptied from the pipe and any remaining particles can be easily removed by rinsing with water. fastsetting cement in conjunction with a c lear primer for optimum joint integrity. strong.

It should be noted that most bending procedures will induce stress into the pipe wall which can be retained in the material after the bend radius is formed.. Inc. exposure to certain chemicals can affect the clarity of the product over time. and any other heavy system components). oxidative agents and acids may result in discoloration. The use of a filling medium during the bending process can also cause slight pitting and other interior surface blemishes depending on the method used. Direct exposure to sunlight will result in discoloration. nor the testing of these systems using compressed air or gases. the pipe should be held in place and cooled quickly using a wet sponge or other application of water. Hangers used must have an adequate load-bearing surface free of any rough or sharp edges that could damage the piping during use. It should also be noted that during the bending process of clear PVC pipe.) 1/4 3/8 1/2 3/4 1 1-1/4 1-1/2 2 2-1/2 3 4 6 Maximum Support Spacing in Feet 60°F 4 4-1/2 5 5-1/2 6 6 6-1/2 7 7-1/2 8 9 10 80°F 4 4-1/2 4-1/2 5 5-1/2 6 6 6-1/2 7-1/2 7-1/2 8-1/2 9-1/2 100°F 3-1/2 4 4-1/2 4-1/2 5 5-1/2 5-1/2 6 6-1/2 7 7-1/2 9 120°F 2-1/2 2-1/2 3 3 3-1/2 3-1/2 3-1/2 4 4-1/2 4-1/2 5 6 140°F 2 2-1/2 2-1/2 2-1/2 3 3 3-1/2 3-1/2 4 4 4-1/2 5 7 .

Due to the recovery characteristics of the material. provided excessive bending stresses are not retained. the material will become cloudy during the hea ting process but will regain c larity when cooled.

Attempting to form bends in rigid thermoplastic piping a t temperatures too low (below 200°F) can induce excessive stress into the pipe. The amount of stress induced is dependent on the severity of the bend. pipe bending should be limited to a pplications for use at ambient temperatures or lower where maximum operating pressures are not utilized. the pipe should be bent slightly beyond the desired radius and allo wed to spring back to the required angle once uniformly heated at the correct temperature. They must also not restrict linear movement of the system due to the effects of expansion and contraction. Proper support spacing is critical to ensure that deflection is kept to a minimum. Although Harvel Clear™ maintains its physical properties when exposed to many substances. Threading or grooving of Harvel Schedule 40 Clear pipe is not recommended due to insufficient wall thickness. operating temperature of the system.

When the bend is obtained. Use specialty clear transition fittings for threaded assemblies or standard PVC transition fittings where applicable.Hangers and Supports Support location and spacing is dependent on the pipe diameter. The minimum radius at bend should not be less than five times the pipe outside diameter to prevent flattening.
